Etsy, like ravelry, is one of those sites where you go looking for something and emerge hours later having completely forgotten what you were looking for in the first place.
I found this vintage ribbon on a recent search and knew it would be perfect for this dress from a Japanese sewing book (ISBN 978-4-579-11289-0).
My closest Spotlight and Textile Traders are 100km away and you are never sure of the buttons they will have in stock (though the buttons in Textile Traders were great on my last visit and cheap!). So it is much easier to search Etsy and saves me a drive to Bunbury. I got these ones from here.
I am a little bit in love with the picot edging. I must knit more picot edges I think.
